Default What long dead IP would you like to see revived?

There are many IPs out there that just fell off the map from games that were overlooked, sold poorly or just never got a sequel. Lets stick to IPs that are 10 years or older since anything less isn't that old or out of memory yet.

One game series I would like to see brought back is SCUD The Disposable Assassin. It was a nice 2D Side-Scroller from Sega.

As for PC IPs, maybe Heavy Gear 2 and Battlezone 2. Kinda on the edge of the 10 year mark.

Syndicate and Shadowrun would be my top picks, I love me some cyberpunk and those worlds were awesome.

X-Wing or Wing Commander would be good too, I miss space action games.

A nice isometric action RPG with coop like Secret of Mana with online support and modern graphics (still 2D, just prettier) would be awesome.

Lastly No One Lives Forever... Cate Archer needs to come back (and be sexed up).

Elite, Wing Commander, X-Fighter and basically all other proper space opera games.
There is simply ridiculous amount of power in new GPUs which could be used to create an incredible experience for such a focused games.

Carmageddon, I think that is just about 10 years for TDR.

Definitely NOLF

Mech Warrior, though it is being revived but somehow I doubt to its former glory

Mech Commander, awesome game had some cool tactics and fun multiplay, never got into Mech Commander 2 though it didn't seem nearly as good.
